    Where do I start? Too many angles. Too many useless creases and surface features. The chopped roof & greenhouse. The lack of outward view. The lack of heritage.

    Not true. I set idle, and then I check everything with a fast idle (3,000 rpm). Generally after slow idle is set, any change for fast idle is in the 1/16 to 1/8 turn range.

    I'm amazed at how similar these cars are. In my opinion they share similar lines and profile. But driving them back-to-back reveals that the similarity is more then skin deep.

    From day-one the S30 was available with a 5-speed, so with a 5-speed it would be period correct.
